It's over, and yes, Laura's still standing

First things first: I'm alive.

Contrary to what my mom thought, the Andy's Challenge did not kill me. It was an amazing experience that I loved but will never even consider doing again. I would rather get hit by a train.

I don't want to give it all away but here are some questions I'd like to answer:

• Did I beat the Big "A" Challenge?

• Did I beat my challenger John, a 6-foot-6 295-pound mammoth?

• Did I throw up?

I can accurately answer two of those questions with a yes and one of the questions with a no.

If you want the full story -- and photos -- you will have to pick up a copy of tomorrow's News-Argus.

(Don't worry, it is PG)
